Stephen King Reads from His Upcoming Sequel to The Shining

Late last week, Stephen King treat­ed an audi­ence at George Mason Uni­ver­si­ty to a 10-minute read­ing from his upcom­ing book Dr. Sleep . It’s not just any oth­er book. It’s the sequel to The Shin­ing, his 1977 thriller that Stan­ley Kubrick fam­mous­ly adapt­ed to film. (Don’t miss Mak­ing the Shin­ing here.)

King first start­ed talk­ing about a sequel in 2009, and now we’re get­ting our first taste of what’s to come. At long last, you will know what hap­pened to Dan­ny Tor­rance.

The read­ing appears above, and King talks some more about the unfin­ished sequel below.
